Blanc plays down United talk

05 Jan 2010 - 13:20:30

Bordeaux coach Laurent Blanc has dismissed speculation that he has been lined up to succeed Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United.

Blanc, 44, has made an impressive start to life as a coach after leading Bordeaux to the Ligue 1 title last season in only his second year in the dugout.

However, the former United defender has rubbished suggestions that he has been earmarked for the Old Trafford job when Ferguson decides to end his record-breaking reign.

Blanc is also similarly dismissive of claims that he could be the next coach of France.

"I signed a contract with Bordeaux for two more years so there is no urgency regarding my future," he declared.

"I have not received any approaches either from the French federation or from abroad.

"Just because I have strong links with Ferguson he's not going to come up to me and say 'hey, here you go Laurent, I've saved the place for you'."
